I've completed the first two blocks for *A Year in the Garden*...
...and have just begun the third.
These will be keeping me busy for a while, but definitely worth the effort as they're a joy to stitch.
If you're interested in stitching A Year in the Garden with me all the information is over HERE.
While I stitch each afternoon I've been watching old episodes of The Great British Bake Off...
...which gets me so inspired to cook tasty things for Mr E!
Thing is, I can't stitch and bake at the same time so I schedule an hour between each episode to gather a recipe or two and pop something in the oven to bake while I continue my hand sewing and watch the next episode.
This is working very well for me and Mr E's rather impressed with the results too!
Yesterday I made a Zucchini, Bacon & Cheese Slice, plus a Corn & Avocado Salsa (both for his work lunch the next day) and as a real treat some Buttermilk Sultana Scones...
We haven't had our favourite scones in a very long time because we rarely have wheat anymore, but I made an exception yesterday as occasional treats that fill your heart with warm and fuzzy 'feel good' emotions are rather important in life.
This morning we're back to grain free, but it's still delicious fare - gluten free toast smothered with fresh ground 100% peanut butter, local bananas and local raw honey...served at sunrise with a pot of just-brewed black coffee because Mr E had a very early start and I always like for him to have a substantial and healthy meal before his work day begins...
Today I'll be doing a spot of dusting in the living room and that may mean emptying all my bookcases to get at cobwebs and polish the shelves - but I can still watch the telly so it's going to be a toss-up between more Great British Bake Off or Kirstie Allsopp's "Homemade Home".
Hope you have a lovely productive day too!
